Year with Swollen Appendices, A: Brian Eno's Diary [9780571364619]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

At the end of 1994, musician, producer and artist Brian Eno resolved to keep a diary. His plans to go to the cinema, theatre and galleries fell through quickly. What he did do - and write - however, was astonishing: ruminations on his collaborative work with artists including David Bowie, U2, James and Jah Wobble, interspersed with correspondence and essays dating back to 1978.

These 'appendices' covered topics from the generative and ambient music Eno pioneered to what he believed the role of an artist and their art to truly be, alongside razor-sharp commentary on his day-to-day tribulations and happenings around the world. A fascinating, candid and intimate insight into one of the most influential creative artists of our time, A Year with Swollen Appendices is an essential classic, reissued for a new generation of readers.

This beautiful 25th anniversary hardback edition has been re-designed in A5, the same size as the diary that eventually became this book. It features two ribbons, pink paper delineating the appendices (matching the original hardback edition) and a two-tone cover on boards that pays homage to the original design.
AUTHOR: Brian Eno, musician, producer, visual artist and activist, first came to international prominence in the early seventies as a founding member of British band Roxy Music. His visionary production includes albums with Talking Heads, Devo, U2, Laurie Anderson and Coldplay, while his long list of collaborations include recordings with David Bowie, David Byrne, Grace Jones, Karl Hyde and James Blake, among many others. His visual experiments with light and video continue to parallel his musical career, with exhibitions all over the globe. To date he has released over thirty albums of his own music and exhibited extensively, as far afield as the Venice Biennale and the sails of the Sydney Opera House. He is a founding member of the Long Now Foundation, a trustee of ClientEarth and patron of Videre est Credere. His latest album with brother Roger, Mixing Colours was released on Deutsche Grammophon earlier this year.
